Why don't little monsturds know about Dale Bozzio? She's practically a bozzio 2.0 very bad copy of her.
monsters cunts live in denial.
I truly cannot imagine living in a society that has her fans (with all their intellectual shortcomings) inserted in the working class / economy in the US. If we think it’s bad now, wait for a few more years. It will be an economy based on a victimized society.
As for Dale Bozzio, everything is there: the colored hair, even the “bubble” outfit!
Except that Dale Bozzio’s “bubble” outfit screamed originality, ingenuity and creativity (it was made of bubble wrap). Unlike Gaga’s, who copied a piece created by Hussein Chalayan.
These are the kind of sites that make me sick to my stomach! People have been influenced strongly by other artists for years! This is including Madonna herself and Michael Jackson and many many others! What the hell are you going to do about it?! And why the hell should little monsters put their paws down? This site is just another excuse to hate! Hate never generates anything positive.
You are a dumb ass brainless bitch who should read the blog before deciding to blab about things your almost nonexistent brain cannot grasp.
There is a huge difference between being inspired by someone and copying someone.
Lady Gaga is a serial copycat. Even though she (herself) claims to be original, there is nothing original about her - not her music, not her looks, not her rhetoric.
You talk as if we were picking on her for “getting inspired” once by Madonna or something. But no, stop living in denial now:
Lady Gaga’s entire career was built according to Madonna’s career.
Are you one of those who started following her career after she made it big? Let me tell you: even her press release (the one distributed to the press before Just Dance became a hit) was written with Madonna in mind:
Girl “from a rigorous Catholic family, went to a nun’s school, started her career in the NY underground club scene, bla bla bla…”. That’s how her record label was selling her to the press since day one.
You see, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, they have all paid tribute to Madonna through homage or inspiration at some point.
The other way around is true too. Even Kylie Minogue!
You see, Kylie Minogue spent the first five years of her career imitating Madonna the same way Gaga does now (her Rhythm of Love tour in 1991 was a carboncopy of Madonna’s Blond Ambition).
The difference is that Kylie has always acknowledged the power of Madonna in the business. In her words:
“[Madonna’s] huge influence on the world, in pop and fashion, meant that I wasn’t immune to the trends she created. I admire Madonna greatly but in the beginning she made it difficult for artists like me, she had done everything there was to be done.”
Kylie Minogue then went on her way, found her visual identity and now stands on her own. And maybe because she has always been so honest about following Madonna’s steps, Madonna herself has paid tribute to Kylie Minogue in several occasions.
And to this day, they both borrow ideas from each other and are always very respectful when they talk about each other. Not every nod has to be a copy. See how one can recreate what another artist has done and still be original:
Kylie Minogue once included Madonna’s Vogue in her concert tour:
Then, a few years later, when Madonna went on tour and sang Vogue, she had her dancers wearing a similar outfit Minogue’s dancers wore when singing Madonna’s tune:
It literally is a twisted way of giving a nod to another artist: Kylie Minogue sang Madonna’s song. Madonna had her dancers wearing a similar outfit Minogue’s dancers wore. No one copied anyone here.
Madonna has paid homage to some of these women in many occasions. Madonna has been inspired by some of them and many others in several moments of her career. But no one could ever even suggest that Madonna’s career has been modeled in accordance to anyone’s career. Marilyn Monroe?
She was just one of the many Hollywood stars Madonna has paid homage to. And most important of all: they were not her contemporaries.
They were movie stars (Monroe, Dietrich, Garbo, Liz Taylor) from Hollywood’s Golden Age, whereas Madonna is, above all, a music star.
No one would ever suggest Madonna copied their career or style - remember: Madonna has always changed her style and all her nods to stars from the past were a temporary nod for a particular music video (Material Girl, Vogue), film (Who’s That Girl?), an ad campaign (Madonna and the elephant) or a magazine spread.
Madonna’s career was not based on the iconic imagery she referenced to over the years.
So do not mistake an inspiration for a particular cause, with a very specific purpose with someone like Gaga, whose entire career was built on copying someone else’s.
The same way Madonna sported a Monroe look for some specific purposes, actress Scarlett Johanson posed as actress Marlene Dietrich. Differently from Madonna/Monroe (who were in different fields), Johanson/Dietrich are/were both actresses. And still, Johanson was not copying Dietrich. It’s a nod, an homage.
Would you say Kate Winslet copied Elizabeth Taylor? Would you call her a copycat for posing as Taylor?
What about Cate Blanchett chanelling Veronica Lake?
Madonna did Veronica Lake too. But you guys are so desperate to say Madonna copied someone else that even referential nods that are common in advertisement, magazine spreads, imagery references is used against her. So why not against all these other actresses who do the same? You see how dumb and shallow those comparisons are?
Same with katy Perry wearing a cone bra. I know, Madonna wore them before and made them worldwide famous. But when I look at Katy Perry wearing them, she doesn’t come off as a Madonna wannabe. Lady Gaga even without cone bra looks like a desperate Madonna wannabe - that is how intense her work as a serial copycat is.
The thing with Lady Gaga is not simply her cone bra corset, or purple jacket and boots, or ponytail… You add all those visual referential nods, add them to her blatantly copying Madonna’s music, blatantly copying Madonna’s career stunts, blatantly copying Madonna’s videos and you will find out that Lady Gaga is all about copying Madonna’s career. What she does is disrespectful. It’s nasty.
And worse: Lady Gaga thinks she is smart. Remember when she cried during an interview with NME and said (about the Born This Way / Express Yourself issue): “Just because I’m the first fucking artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn’t mean I’m a plagiarist, it means that I’m fucking smart. Sorry.”
Oh yeah, she said that right after vehemently denying copying Madonna’s song. She IS as delusional and contradictory as her moronic brainless fans.
Wake up and smell the coffee. Lady gaga based her entire career on Madonna’s - and not only she has copied Madonna’s style, music and stunts in many occasions, as she often copies other people’s styles too:
Unlike Madonna’s nods to Hollywood actresses, or Kate Winslet’s nod to Liz Taylor, or Scarlett Johanson’s nod to Marlene Dietrich, or Cate Blanchett as Veronica Lake, or Lindsey Lohan’s nod to Marilyn Monroe, Lady Gaga never acknowledged being “inpired” by Christina Aguilera’s looks.
She never acknowledged she paid homage to Gwen Stefani either.
I can’t recall Lady Gaga paying tribute to Kylie Minogue either.
In other words, all I see in Gaga is a copy. Those looks were not part of a tribute, she was not paying homage to anyone, she was simply copying their style and acting as if she had created those looks. Even her most memorable looks were knock-offs!
Her “bubble dress” was a Hussein Chalayan knock off and her meat dress was a copy of Jana Sterbak’s 1987 meat dress. Gaga copied them too.
That, folks, is the difference between being influenced by someone and copying someone.
